Cape Town’s rare electrical storm caught on camera

Cape Town’s rare electrical storm caught on camera

It’s not often that Cape Town gets electrical storms, but this week we were treated to a fine display of atmospheric drama. Local photographer Brendon Wainwright wasted no time in getting a front-row seat and took the incredible pic featured above. It shows a view across Camps Bay to Lion’s Head and beyond. Brendon says he spent the entire night watching the show as hundreds of lightning strikes lit up the Atlantic.

Brendon is one of our favourite photographers and is known for his deeply atmospheric landscape portraits. Nobody captures the moods of the Cape weather and nature quite like him.

The image above is one of a number of Brendon’s photos available for sale at Orms Photo Art. You can see more of his work on Instagram, Facebook, and National Geographic. And now we really can’t resist sharing one more – a panorama of our own neighbourhood, Camps Bay.
